The new Clean Air Express Saturday bus service that began July 11, 2015, now connects Santa Barbara with nearby Santa Ynez Valley wine country destinations of Solvang, Buellton and Los Olivos. Mary Byrd, Project Manager of the Santa Barbara Car Free Project, led by the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) remarked, “Car free visitors to Santa Barbara often ask us about taking public transportation to the Valley, and now we have a great answer! The Clean Air Express Saturday service is a super ‘car free” option for exploring, shopping, dining, wine-tasting and cultural attractions.”
